There are dozens of bosses for you to fight in Elden Ring, but certain ones are more powerful than others, and they have legendary weapons you can loot from them after you win. Rennala, the Full Moon Queen, is one of these bosses.

When you defeat Rennala, you’ll receive her Remembrance, which contains the Carian Regal Scepter, or you can choose to go with Rennala’s Full Moon spell. Both of them are powerful options, and which of the two you pick comes down to the playstyle you want for your character. Here’s what you need to know about whether you should pick the Carian Regal Scepter or Rennala’s Full Moon Spell in Elden Ring.

What is the Best Remembrance of the Full Moon Queen Choice in Elden Ring?

Should you pick Rennala's Full Moon or Carian Regal Scepter in Elden Ring?

Like many of the Remembrance items in Elden Ring, the choice comes down to the type of character you’re playing. For those with a high Intelligence attribute on their character, grab Rennala’s Full Moon spell, and if you are using Intelligence with other stats and want a melee weapon, choose Carian Regal Scepter.

Rennala’s Full Moon spell requires you to have at least 70 Intelligence, whereas the Carian Regal Scepter only needs 60 Intelligence, alongside at least eight Strength and 10 Dexterity. Not only will the Carian Regal Scepter be a powerful melee weapon, but it’s going to boost any Full Moon spells your character is using, namely Ranni’s Dark Moon and Rennala’s Full Moon.

Honestly, because Carian Regal Scepter and Rennala’s Full Moon spell work so well together in Elden Ring, the Remembrance of the Full Moon Queen is a perfect candidate for you to use at the Mausoleum where you can duplicate your Remembrance.

If you must choose between the two at the beginning of your Elden Ring playthrough, I recommend going with Carian’s Regal Scepter. This is a weapon that you can acquire in your game, and upgrade using Somber Smithing Stones if you already have some in your possession. You can bring them to Smithing Master Hewg, who is working at the Table of Lost Grace.

After upgrading Carian’s Regal Scepter several times, using it in combat while your character wields Ranni’s Dark Moon and Rennala’s Full Moon spells will make them incredibly powerful. You have to devote many of your early attribute points to Intelligence in Elden to make this worth it, but it’s perfect for players working on their second game playthrough.
